Buddy is not a 'perfectly normal' name in the U.K. Is it a diminutive?

that was my thought, too! Diasy and Poppy are both fairly normal and common, and Blossom i more unusual but I have come across it  before, so I wouldn't see it as wildly unusual.

Buddy sounds very American and I would assume it was a nickname if I heard it. River is, again, unusual but not wildly so.

Buddy is more of a nickname, but it's used enough that I don't think it's weird. Like Buddy Ebsen or Buddy Holly (not the name they were born with); you don't really think about the nickname once you're use to it.
